Heads or Tails


"Heads or Tails"
8" x 10" acrylic on gessoed masonite

Xanadu Gallery

This is the first in a series of high school rodeo paintings that I'm doing. The bright afternoon sun was low in the sky and casting fantastic shadows across everything, including these roping steers that were waiting for the events to start... reluctantly, I'm sure. I was very glad to see that the High School Rodeo Association put protective headgear on these steers to prevent rope burns when they were lassoed.
